    I have been working at Lyft full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lyft is a rapidly growing organization, meaning there are many opportunities for development. The company is made up of an impressive team with smart, accomplished, welcoming and passionate individuals at every level. Leadership and employees alike have an avid interest in their colleagues' and the company's success.

    Cons

    The company is in the spotlight quite often, so everyone you meet will have an opinion or question about the service.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Lyft full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Ability to learn a lot -Lunch on Friday's -I think the culture and company is great in the United States

    Cons

    -Extremely underpaid. Making $5-10 less than other people in the same role. They claim it's because of the market. Yet Toronto & Ottawa make the same hourly rate when costs of living aren't even remotely similar. -There is no line of what clear responsibilities and expectations are. You will be doing the job of a title 3 or 4 ranks higher than you. Then you cannot skip a step once it comes to any sort of promotion. They do 2 times of year when you are eligible for said promotions. There is only two real positions you can take from this job (after you've been there for over a year.. depending on when your start date was because they only promote twice a year). -Management is all over the place. They will make promises they cannot keep. They promise room for growth when end of the day they make you take on more and more responsibility and don't offer any extra compensation to accommodate. -The culture is trash. You will be micromanaged. The negative energy in the hub is depressing.

    "Exciting, Rewarding and Chaotic"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Lyft

    Pros

    The benefits here are fantastic. Flexible PTO, great med benefits and great RSU/stock/ESPP opportunities. Cool to be a part of something that has such a big impact.

    Cons

    Senior leadership, in some departments, is under experienced and it leads to inefficiency and frustration sometimes. Starting to become very corporate. Still had some growing up to do to retain top talent.
